Review 1 of 45

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2009 Pontiac Vibe

Strengths:
Stereo system, mileage, storage.

Weaknesses:
Car is falling apart, I have had it less than one year.

Summary:
This car is garbage. All the pieces are falling off, probably from the vibration and noise of the car. I have had 3 wheel caps replaced so far and now only have one left; the back of the passager seat has fallen off; side view mirror back has now fallen off. The back storage area scratches VERY easily. Overall a beautiful car to look at, very good mileage, but in my opinion not much thought or care was put into designing this for passengers. It is not at all a quiet, comfortable ride. I got sold on the look. (Last time that will happen)

Never owned a Pontiac before and it is no wonder they are going out of business.

Review 2 of 45

Price Paid:  $0.00

Strengths:
comfort of seats, gas economy, versatility. Ease of doing maintenance.

Weaknesses:
more interior noise than I'd like.

Summary:
Excellent buy, very comfortable seats nice handling and visibility is good. Versatility works well. We transported a 5'X 10' rug and only had to fold down half the back seat. We are pulling a 950 pound trailer and have had no problems.

Review 3 of 45

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 VIBE

Strengths:
Mileage, roomy cargo area, not too high or big exterior.

Weaknesses:
Driving position- steering wheel does not tilt toward driver / awkard, tiring, & uncomfortable. Seat needs more back support- uncomfortable at times.
Dinky radio control knobs, dinky rear view mirror (can not see sides, too small mirror to point of unsafe). Windshield wiper mechanism (box) interferes w/ rear vision.
Control awkward & hard to reach (have to lean to right or take hand off steering wheel) - car seems to be made for someone about 4-5" taller than I am (5'"). Can't see fuel gauge w/o raising up, etc.
Annoying "dings" prematurely on seat belts- too loud to point of unsafe distraction (like at teller deposit- having to open door, etc.)
Should look at Saturn for GM sensibility in layout, intuitive user comfort etc.

Summary:
Needs some comfort, convenience overhaul in interior. Otherwise good vehicle.

Review 4 of 45

Price Paid:  $12900.00 from Gay Pontiac, Texas C

Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 Pontiac/Vibe

Strengths:
Made in America, Good gas mileage (35 mpg combined), Low Cost, Good Reliability, Cargo capacity.

Summary:
This is an excellent car. I chose it over the Honda Fit. The Vibe is an American made car with an American nameplate, gets better gas mileage, has more room, and is less expensive than the Fit. I highly reecomend this often overlooked vehicle.

Review 5 of 45

Price Paid:  $16000.00 from laclair sales

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Vibe

Summary:
This is actually an 07 with the 100,000 mile warranty.

I have the 5 speed manual and have found it to be a very tight and stable car. Fit and finish was excellent and I have no complaints. After all my GM discounts I paid only around $12,000 for this great car.

Mileage is rather astounding giving me anywhere from 33 to 36 in town MPG and HWY at 34 at an average 74 MPH.

The seats are far more comfortable than I expected and it is a quiet car with tons of room. I have to power window, door, etc. package and have found that very nice as well as the cruise.

Love this car and I have owned many Honda civics in the past, including SI's.
